Background/Info: Californian based Johann Sebastian is back after a hiatus of four years. While we’re eagerly expecting the new full length album entitled “Indupop”, we here already get an appetizer. This EP features the title song plus 7 remixed songs.
Content: “Mindless” is a catchy, melodic electro-pop song like we’ve been used to hear from this band. Remixes have been done by Accessory, Ruined Conflict (2x), ES23 (2x) and DJ Dominatrix (2x). You’ll hear remixes of the title song plus other cuts.
+ + + : “Mindless” is not the best cut I’ve heard from Johann Sebastian although it’s a cool and well-crafted piece of synth-pop. Among the remixes I especially recommend the somewhat EBM flavored remix of the title track by DJ Dominatrix. Ruined Conflict also did a great job remixing “Encore”.
– – – : I would have liked to hear at least one extra song instead of this endless list of remixes. While Ruined Conflict did a great job on “Encore” they also featured a rather poorly inspired remix of “Industrial”.
Conclusion: This EP is food for DJ’s and the biggest fans of the band, but I prefer to discover the album to get an idea about State Of Nation ano 2018!
Best songs: “Mindless – Logic-A Remix by DJ Dominatrix”, “Mindless – Original Mix”, “Encore – Mix by Ruined Conflict”.
